Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium

3.5/5 (2 Reviews)
You won’t find any animated mascots here, nor will you be spending your time on roller coasters. Instead, enter a zone filled with the bizarre, the grotesque, and the genuinely puzzling. See the smallest car in the world, a “Wall-E” robot made from car parts, and….a real shrunken head!

Home of the odd, the grotesque, the abnormal, the innovative and the downright weird, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium in Orlando is certainly different from other area attractions. Instead of rides, you can challenge yourself with cryptic puzzles and brain teasers; instead of animated characters, you can come face-to-face (pun absolutely intended) with real shrunken heads and a portrait of Beyonce made entirely from candy. Think outside the park, and treat yourself to a bizarre bazaar of the unusual at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Orlando! Here’s a look at some of the Odditorium’s more unique holdings:

  • Ripley’s Legendary Fertility Statues (temporary exhibit)
  • A Peel Trident Car (the smallest production car in the world!)
  • A “Wall-E” robot replica made from car parts
  • A 25-foot high mural of Jimi Hendrix made from playing cards
  • A balloon-powered chair that flew over the Rocky Mountains
  • A dog sculpture made entirely of clothes pins
  • A wacky shooting gallery
  • An 8-foot long fish
  • A 7-legged sheep
  • A rare T-Rex foot and leg fossil
  • A stuffed alligator/gar measuring more than 8 feet
  • Countless optical illusions and brain teasers

At 10,000 square feet, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium in Orlando is more weirdness than you’ve ever seen in one place…no really—it doesn’t get much stranger than this place. Robert Ripley was a cartoonist, explorer, reporter, adventurer, illustrator, collector and seeker of the unusual. During the first half of the 20th century, he was considered to be one of the most famous people in the world. Believe it or not, he died of a heart attack at the age of 58 while taping the 13th episode of his television series—an episode about death and death rituals. Experience a little bit of that classic American eccentricity that makes this one of the most innovative nations on earth, and get off the beaten path during your visit to Orlando with a stop at Ripley’s Odditorium!

Better than expected.
By Luv 2 Travl Verified Reviewer from Williamsport, Pennsylvania on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium:

We liked this more than expected. We were talked into buying a brochure at the beginning that we didn't need or use. The beginning of the museum was very congested. There were a lot of cool things in the museum.
